Things to do in the region
It’s not all about the seaside down here. There’s lots of history to discover in Essex, whether you fancy a trip over to the Roman ruins in Colchester (or its zoo, or its castle!), Dedham Vale, or a hike up the valley. You’ll see the very same views that inspired Constable. And because this is an area of outstanding natural beauty, it’s protected from development – meaning nothing much has changed!
